Hello! I want to take a few moments to thank all of you who have ordered my book “Moon Days.” It is such a pleasure to share what I have learned about the moon cycle and I am grateful to those folks who agreed to take a peek at the lunar system for their own use.
Stick with me for a minute and I’ll reveal a moon cycle secret.
LAST QUARTER + 5 DAYS
On this LQ+5 Last Quarter plus 5 days, June 22, there are several items listed in Moon Days that resonate with me today.
“Use daily priority lists.” This may sound like a simplistic thing to say for any day, but it means more during Last Quarter week than any other week of the cycle. While the emotional body and spirit body are making adjustments from the last cycle and looking forward the next one, this advice keeps everyday tasks moving along while the inner musings are processing. Lists ground my day during this time.
Here’s another one: “How It Feels: A shred of hope returns. The new cycle begins in a few short days. Treasure the recent wisdom gained.” I am also strongly identifying with this stage of the cycle. I’ve participated in a major transition during the last week and I do feel that shred of hope for better days ahead. I need hope to survive or I wither in negative emotions.
These are only a few of the entries for this moon day. I purposely made them short to reveal the most important points of the day and allow for the most personal interpretation. Each person will take a unique perspective from it. My shred of hope is very different from yours!
NEW MOON FRIDAY
Now we are poised at the threshold of the New Moon on Friday June 23.
In the “Moon Days” ebook or paperback, I especially like the image for the New Moon day: “The seed swells with the rain.” The cycle eases through the phases. Some people will be ready to act and others of us will be simply percolating with new ideas.
New Moon Day: “What to Do: Let the day be okay. Notice where attention goes. Choose the tone for the cycle. Tend a New Moon ritual.” There is no demand of activity for this day, only the opportunity to acknowledge it.
One of the Journal Topics for the New Moon day is “Compared to last week, today I feel like…” I believe it is important to take some perspective on occasion. Sometimes it feels like the world is too hard and then it all changes during the next part of the cycle. This helps me through the hard times knowing that the lunar rhythm will carry on and I will move along with it.
One of the secrets to enjoying the tremendous benefits of the lunar rhythm is that the cycle engages when you decide to participate.
